Implications of Biomedical Technology. Harvard University Program on Technology and Society; Research Review Number One.
Taviss, Irene, Ed.; Koivumaki, Judith, Ed.
A small number of books and articles devoted to the social, political, ethical, and legal implications of the biomedical field and technology have been abstracted for this document. A basic criterion for selection was the focus on questions of overall organization and public policy rather than on more specialized concerns. Topics covered include policy for biomedical science, health and medical policy, and three specific technologies--genetic and behavioral control, transplants and artificial organs, and drug-use. Each topic is introduced with a brief summary of the state-of-the-art, followed by the applicable abstracts. A reference list and an author index are provided. (JY)
